Miss Miller

00:00:17--> 00:00:53

said Imani como rahmatullah wa barakato. Miss Miller well hamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. While early he was a woman who Allah, Allah alumna Miriam foul now on Fang habima alum tena inika semiology will do a long money how to become an MLA amfa wakatobi Leah, when I've seen letters about what do I use Ma, or Bonilla to sue when a bad headache or habla nampula don't call in I can tell Wahab rubbish roughly sundry waste silly Omri waterflow. The Tamil assignee of Cabo poly. Does that come along? You're on for joining us at 100 Lego Bellamy.

00:00:54--> 00:01:04

Today's Tuesday, it's seven o'clock, it's our weekly meeting. And looking forward to see you all hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen today actually,

00:01:05--> 00:01:23

one of the events that happened today some of you may probably have followed it is actually was the funeral of George Floyd, the man who passed away about two weeks ago and we all know the story and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen and I keep saying that hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen as a lot of pantalla.

00:01:25--> 00:01:42

Repeatedly say this in the hall and and as a Rasul Allah has sought to sit on taught us that we always say Alhamdulillah, All praise is to Allah subhanaw taala, even when the surroundings are not the best, which is basically what he taught us is Alhamdulillah, Allah, Allah, hell,

00:01:43--> 00:01:55

All Praise to Allah, for every condition, for anything we are going around. So hamdu, lillahi, rabbil, aalameen, two weeks ago, it's a little bit more than two weeks ago, we all know what's happened. And then

00:01:56--> 00:02:14

the unrest start. And the lack of peace, if you want to say say it, and you see it around us, you hear it, you watch it. And it is started in locally in few states now all over the states, now, actually, all over the globe.

00:02:16--> 00:02:27

Then before that, the whole universe lived in about two or three months, few if you start from March for us in the United States, lived in a state of unrest,

00:02:28--> 00:03:16

state of uncertainty, state of lack of inner peace, and maybe some of us even external peace. So here you go. Subhan Allah as if the 2020 since we started, it's a year of a challenge. It's a year of things that is we are not used to it's not the usual. A lot of what's happened most of the people did not live to see it. That includes the COVID-19 what happened recently, after the death of George Floyd, people who lived in the 90s, and they were adult will remember what's happened in LA. So what is the point I was trying, I'm getting to,

00:03:18--> 00:03:29

when things around us is not exactly what we are comfortable with, or what we want it to be we live in a state of

00:03:31--> 00:03:55

agitation, anxiety, sorrow, could be depression on the rest, external and internal and the opposite of it is the state of peace. And this is what I'm trying to get to today inshallah one may Allah subhanaw taala make me deliver what I want to say today.

00:03:56--> 00:04:04

And peace in English, translated loosely into the word in Arabic, which is called a Salaam.

00:04:05--> 00:04:12

However, the word Salaam if you translate it to English, it has many meanings.

00:04:14--> 00:04:44

Peace in English, if you look at the definition of peace in English, what is peace? It's basically freedom of any disturbances. Freedom of any unrest, or it's a state of tranquility. I feel okay. I feel not agitated. As salam in the Arabic language. One of it is one of its meaning is actually peace and tranquility.

00:04:46--> 00:04:53

What we want to learn, how will I live in peace and everything around me?

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

If anything is lack of peace, and I'm talking to global I'm not talking today.

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

about individual circumstances we're talking about everything around us is affecting everyone in one way or the other.

00:05:09--> 00:05:23

So the first thing we need to remember what is so interesting as I was preparing this talk, one of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala is one of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala is a Salaam

00:05:24--> 00:05:30

a Salaam, the piece and it's so interesting

00:05:31--> 00:05:35

that this name have been mentioned only once in the aura

00:05:37--> 00:05:53

the name of Allah that is mentioned only once in the Quran is a Salaam. And it's actually in solitude hasher which many of us are familiar with it, the end of solitude, the gathering or the cramming.

00:05:54--> 00:06:01

The last two verses in salted hash Allah pantalla talks about himself who Allah who led the law, you know how law who

00:06:02--> 00:06:43

are highly motivated he was Shahada, who are rough man or roughly he he's a power law, introduce himself who are law, He is Allah La Ilaha Illa who know no God, no deity but him. Ali mauvais be your Shahada, the Knower of the unseen and the seen who are rough man Rahim. He is the All Merciful, the giver and the owner of mercy. Who Allahu lidija ilaha illa who does the next verse? He is a law no DT but him who Allahu Allah, Allah who now he starts mentioning his names any medical could do so Salaam

00:06:44--> 00:06:49

I mean only Mohammed Al Aziz al Jabbar Mata cambiar s Salaam

00:06:50--> 00:06:55

and what is the name a set um for Allah mean?

00:06:56--> 00:07:31

Because once I know that the meaning of that name off the last panel what Allah it's going to take me to looking at how I can Is it possible? I live in this name with this name? So it's Mullah Salaam, basically, you translated in many ways. You don't say Allah is the piece that's that's not it? I Salaam Hua law, basically meaning that Allah is free of any

00:07:32--> 00:07:36

deficiencies of any

00:07:37--> 00:07:52

thing that is not perfect. Salama, toman coalition, Allah is the peace and the Jenna, his house, the name of it darussalam

00:07:53--> 00:08:15

the house of peace, or the house of a law, whose name is the peace. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is the peace. Allah subhanaw taala is the one who is free from any insufficiency or from anything that is not befit him.

00:08:17--> 00:08:23

And he is now coming to how we live it. He is the owner of peace

00:08:24--> 00:08:28

and he is the giver of peace.

00:08:30--> 00:08:34

Islam, our religion Salaam

00:08:35--> 00:08:38

is all rooted in that word.

00:08:39--> 00:08:43

All rooted in that word and I'll come to it later on.

00:08:45--> 00:08:46

Are Swati salatu salam

00:08:48--> 00:08:57

so that is to harbor the companions in Salah sending Salaam to Allah subhana wa Taala as cinnamal aka Allah.

00:08:59--> 00:09:13

Peace be upon you, your Allah. And this hadith is no hurry actually. And he said latter holo. As salam, O Allah Allah. Don't say, peace be upon you. Yeah, Allah for in Allahu wa salam.

00:09:14--> 00:09:59

O Allah is the Salam. He is the owner of peace. I cannot pray for him to have peace Subhana he owns it. He is the one rather say what we now we say adhere to the law. He was Salama to work for you. But what we say now in our Salah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is the owner of peace and the peace in his name a Salaam is actually he is free from any imperfection from anything that is not perfect. Interesting. After all sila What are his thoughts?

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Sit down also taught us so look at Salah

00:10:05--> 00:10:10

we finished at the here to rely. So we send the solo what the

00:10:11--> 00:10:48

the, the prayer that we do at the end and then we say a Salaam, Allah, the same word peace and it's salamati and then when we finish when we are still sitting after we say a stuffy little law stuff a little light Stafford Allah I seek refuge in Allah. I seek forgiveness of Allah. Allah Suarez thought was Salaam taught us Allah enter Salaam, worming cause Salaam tabarrok diadem generally chrome your Allah you are the year Allah you are the one free from any defect

00:10:49--> 00:11:07

and Salaam and peace and perfection comes from you. tabarrok they are the jury chrome believe glorify you, glorify you, and honorable you are? Or glory you and honor you are.

00:11:08--> 00:11:13

So number one point I was trying to make and I shot law. I made it.

00:11:14--> 00:11:17

Peace. I don't own it.

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

I can't make it.

00:11:22--> 00:12:14

Peace. the only one who's gonna give it to me is Allah subhanho wa Taala because he is the owner of peace. That's number one. So the first thing for me to live in peace around me. I need I'm sorry to live in peace, in spite of what's around me. I need to be connected to the source of peace, which is Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I'll end with it at the end. And there is an ayah a verse in the Quran. So much apply to us these days, that Allah soiree salatu salam was going through time, of unrest, difficulty, but mainly internally, and what Allah subhanho wa Taala taught him

00:12:16--> 00:12:27

to do, and I will end up with at the end. So I want to live in peace internally, and this is the focus of my talk today.

00:12:28--> 00:13:00

Externally, most of us have no control. We have no control on the external. But internally, I can have a control internally on how I feel or react, and mainly how I react. So number one, Allah is the source of peace. He is the one who gives it. He's the one who allows it to happen. And he is the one who allows it not to happen.

00:13:01--> 00:13:16

No, number two, his house darussalam one of the Beautiful Names of Jana of Paradise is actually dar Salaam, the house of peace,

00:13:17--> 00:13:22

the house Subhan Allah, the house of peace.

00:13:23--> 00:14:20

And Allah said it in Surah Toulouse, La Jolla de la dari Salaam, wa idemia Chateau de la salle thing was stopping on Lhasa, this verse in Jonas Jonas or La Jolla. Joe. Your law a lot. You're right. Yeah, Joe invite. He didn't say Who? It's an open invitation. Yeah, Joe illidari salaam. He invite to the house of peace. To the home of peace. We had the meteor shower, and he died who he wants. It also often was talking to the right path. So I don't know his house is peace. That's why Allah enter Salaam wa minca. Sarah, your ally You are the source of peace and peace comes from you. You are the owner.

00:14:21--> 00:14:23

I need to get it from the owner.

00:14:24--> 00:14:58

I am not gonna look to live in peace internally from people because most of people will need it as I do if not even more. I need to ask the owner, the owner of the thing to give me what I want. And the owner of everything is on law let alone a piece and another Hadith are often Swati Sato son said his smell lice and I'm sure will be not this is enough but on the name of Allah is a Salaam subreddit between you

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

He is the source of peace. He is the source of tranquility. He is the source of safety. He is the source or he is the one who will who is able to make me internally feel free of any worry of any anxiety of any illness. I'm talking about spiritual and internal. I'm not talking about external, although he has the external also. And my main source of finding that peace is from Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

internal peace there is an external and internal

00:15:43--> 00:15:53

another Swanee salatu salam in a beautiful Hadith. He said he was asked actually, you're also a law. Are you an assay of

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

your nursey about

00:15:58--> 00:15:59

your Rasul Allah,

00:16:00--> 00:16:03

Who among us are the best?

00:16:05--> 00:16:12

And there is a reason why I'm saying this Hadith, although there is no name of a Salaam in it, who are the best among us.

00:16:14--> 00:16:16

And he responded, quill,

00:16:17--> 00:16:29

quill, Luma homeo caliber sodoku. Listen, he said, Every one. Everyone who pure of heart

00:16:30--> 00:17:27

and sincere in his speech, who is the best person Yara so Allah subhanaw taala. Look what he said. He didn't say the person who does that much external. It's only entitled, number one, and second is internal and external. He said kulula who will help anyone, anyone with a pure heart. And since you are truthful in his speech, now the Sahaba the companions asked him, said YAHWAH so Allah, truthful in speech or sincere in speech, we know but what is this pure in heart? mahoma homophobe and he used very eloquent words in Arabic. What is Muhammad Ali? What is it? And he responded, and he said, a turkey and nucky let it's my fee, he will lie. And I'll translate a turkey. The one who's bias. So

00:17:27--> 00:17:42

who, who is the best among us, Yara. So Allah, He said that person who internally his heart has the following criteria. The heart is pious, Allah conscious, pure

00:17:43--> 00:17:54

lattissima Muffy there is no sin in it. No sin in the heart. What are the and there is no injustice, no rancor, no envy.

00:17:56--> 00:18:11

Peace internally, how do I live in peace around me. And I see all the injustice around me and I see all the uncertainity around me. I live in peace externally, when I am in peace internally.

00:18:12--> 00:18:35

And this is why you see an outcome two examples where, before us a narrow swath a thought was Sam and other prophets were everything around them was so much unrest. But they were so peaceful. They were living in peace. They were stable. They were not shaky.

00:18:36--> 00:18:41

So cool, Luma, wholemeal album, everyone pure in heart.

00:18:43--> 00:19:04

So second thing for me to live in peace. So number one, to live in peace. Get connected to the source of peace. Get connected to the source of peace. As we said the one of the names of Allah that is mentioned once in the Quran as salaam.

00:19:06--> 00:19:12

Number two, I look internal. I don't look external, I look internal.

00:19:13--> 00:19:27

I'm going to be the best person who I'm going to live in peace. If my heart is in peace, and for my heart to be in peace. I need the following criteria. The best of the creation taught me

00:19:28--> 00:19:57

the best of the creation taught me cool turkey I need to be pious, Allah conscious. A lot conscious when I feel is this is is this feeling pleasing to Allah. When I'm about to say something is this is pleasing to Allah. When I am not doing something is this is a pleasing to Allah, a Ducky and nothing pure. You know when sometimes we say they are so naive.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

so naive

00:20:00--> 00:20:28

Any How come they think this way who who think this way nucky pure, they're not. They are not there they are. They are blemished. They are they're pure, they're white, shiny, shiny, no ill thinking no thinking of people way worse than what they are not things happens and they think this means this and that. Nothing like a baby

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

loving no rancor

00:20:32--> 00:20:36

Willa is no Sins of the heart and no envy.

00:20:37--> 00:20:49

No MB so second thing for me span Allah. This Deen always always turn us internally

00:20:50--> 00:20:51

as a human being

00:20:52--> 00:21:07

because internally we have way more control than externally. And Allah subhanho wa Taala take us accountable by the internal First and most in the law Alejandra Swati.

00:21:09--> 00:21:23

A law does not look at the way I am but he looks like and younger ila glooby cumulative isador Allah looks at the heart that inside. So second thing for me to live in peace. I need to turn the lens

00:21:24--> 00:21:25

look inward.

00:21:27--> 00:21:45

I'm not going to focus on the outside what happens what's on the news? What's who's saying this? Who's saying that? Let me look internally and say Do I have the criteria that Rasul Allah salatu wa sallam said, these criteria will make the heart pure and live in peace.

00:21:46--> 00:22:02

Allah conscious, pure and clean, naive in a positive way, free of sins, internally free of sins, and free of envy, free of hatred,

00:22:03--> 00:22:05

free of anger.

00:22:06--> 00:22:07

So number two,

00:22:08--> 00:22:13

to reach and to live in peace. Number three

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

and number three is gonna

00:22:20--> 00:22:44

make it clearer and easier to look at number one and two. And there is two incidents, which some of us may be familiar with. Now the first incidence is when our swelling is sore afterwards Sarah, and this is also in the Quran. And Allah said it and I'll give you the idea first, Allah subhanho wa Taala said in swatted Toba, the repentance and Allah Pantanal pantalla said

00:22:45--> 00:22:57

in whom I feel already when they are indicate you know mafia hottie is it. Is it Omar filati the whole resort heavy lotta has done in a la hermana

00:22:59--> 00:23:14

he is in the cave. He is in the cave. Or Swati Sato sinner would say you know, boubakeur, Sahabi his friend, and he's telling him Don't be sad. We all know this word. Don't be sad. Allah is with us.

00:23:17--> 00:23:27

When you read this idea, and you're gonna say why did he tell him? Latta has a Don't be sad? What was the front feeling?

00:23:28--> 00:23:41

That's a roswaal a thought your Salaam responded. And if you read the commentary and to make it clearer and shorter and simpler, they were going as we know in the Sierra, they are leaving Makkah going to Medina.

00:23:43--> 00:23:57

And there is one who was following them. So Rob Malik, and Satan Abu Bakr with with the Roswell insight or sinner saw Soraka he saw him and said, you're also allies seeing us.

00:23:58--> 00:24:05

They're going to come and catch us. This is a state of uncertainty, fear, anxiety

00:24:06--> 00:24:22

external and so you know, boubakeur with all his emotion, felt the fear the fear for roswaal Isa Torsella now roswaal is thought to a Salaam responded latter husband. Don't worry. Don't be sad.

00:24:23--> 00:24:29

Don't feel anxious in Allah manner. A lot is with us.

00:24:30--> 00:24:59

And immediately, immediately we know what's happened. That's how you and me are Muslims these days. The second there's three stories I will share with you and I will summarize what point I'm trying to make so Latta isn't in the law. hermana I want you to remember this word Latta has and don't be sad. Allah is with us. same word, same word in a different way. Say the moose has said it.

00:25:00--> 00:25:28

This is a sort of show on the poem, the poets. When, again, he left Pharaoh, he left with the people with the people who believed with him. Right? And Pharaoh is following them. And if you read the numbers, the numbers is phenomenal. They say even though Musa had 600,000 people with him, and Pharaoh, Pharaoh had 700,000, just in front of him.

00:25:30--> 00:25:45

And the 700,000 of the round, were actually on horses fully equipped. And the people with Sedna Moosa looked back, and they were very close.

00:25:46--> 00:25:51

Call him Nana moody raccoon, we are going to be caught there by deer.

00:25:53--> 00:26:22

Shadow the motto alone and our last pantalla said Farah only said in the Quran, these are very few people. We're going to go and catch them. So these few people 600,000 but Kira had triple that number looked back and they saw they are following them. In animal Jacqueline, they will catch us saying no Moosa responded in a similar way, to our Swati hisar to a salon when he responded to say even Abu Bakar.

00:26:23--> 00:26:35

And he said killer may in Amalia or B, say a lien ne with me, is Allah, he's gonna guide me

00:26:36--> 00:26:40

with me, is Allah, he's gonna guide me

00:26:42--> 00:26:50

with me, Allah, he's gonna guide me to three, save yourself.

00:26:51--> 00:27:51

Save yourself. And I'm not going to go into the details of the whole story. But nobody as a human being lived. The external challenges is that he lived in that short span of life from childhood, with no mistake, no fault of him, no fault of him. And then when Allah subhanho wa Taala, at the end of surah, Joseph gave him the victory. And the brothers who who want to use terminology of these days, we will say you're ruined his life from age eight to about age 40. Right? Immediately his natural response. He said, What is an OB? He told his father, oh, dad, when when when the parents came in, and the brothers and they all prostrated to him. He looked at his father, and he said, This

00:27:51--> 00:27:53

is my dream is true.

00:27:54--> 00:27:58

And Allah wa had asked anNabi,

00:27:59--> 00:28:13

he said, how that we do yeah, this is the interpretation of my dream. Angela Harambee, ha, Allah made the truth. We're living it. waka escena bien. He's telling his father, Allah did the best for me.

00:28:15--> 00:28:18

A hydrogen, even a surgeon, he took me out of the

00:28:20--> 00:28:22

jail. He didn't say he puts me in jail.

00:28:23--> 00:28:26

Jail I become and he brought you all back.

00:28:28--> 00:28:59

40, about 30 years, from slavery to stay to, to the jail is all because the brothers were jealous of him. External unrest. His response? Jah be communal, but do we embody anessa shine upon obeying you obeying what he and Allah brought you back to me? Look at the peace internal. Allah brought you back to me, after shavon has instigated between you between me and my brothers.

00:29:00--> 00:29:07

So three scenarios and this is why we as Muslims, we always have to go back to the Koran.

00:29:08--> 00:29:29

It's a book attack every solution to every incident and to every situation and every problem I have. So when you read this, and I just gave it to you slowly and shortly and quickly, so here you go. You see our swatting is on our towards center with all the worry about the religion

00:29:30--> 00:29:42

and this mate suddenly shattered his response. Latta isn't Don't worry, don't be sad. In Allah hermana Allah is with me.

00:29:43--> 00:29:52

panela so you know Moosa dernbach 700,000 just very close to

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

Cana Don't worry, in no matter your ob Sadie Allah is with me.

00:30:01--> 00:30:19

What is these hearts and then once the evening news of finally the moment of revenge moment of revenge came he didn't say you guys deserve it. So what do you think I will do with you?

00:30:21--> 00:30:27

Absolutely, immediately the connection is with Allah

00:30:28--> 00:30:33

and the best thinking of Allah what is gonna be? He did the best for me.

00:30:34--> 00:30:40

So number one, to live in peace. Learn about Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:30:41--> 00:30:46

learn about Allah pantalla live the name of Salaam

00:30:47--> 00:30:50

after the ship settled a Lhasa to say you know what? Get out. This embark from the ship be Salaam Mina, peace from us. Peace from us after the flood, the major flood

00:32:07--> 00:32:09

major flood to fun.

00:32:11--> 00:32:21

And Allah said get out and peace. Hold on the Quran. The Quran we just came out of the month of the Quran.

00:32:22--> 00:32:38

How much it affected us how much it changed us. Let's just look it's very easy very simple these days Subhanallah just look at the word peace and Salaam in the Quran and you will see Surah Maryam

00:32:39--> 00:33:10

Sade nerissa salaam una year I'm sorry was Salam O Allah yo yo Moly to my alma Omu Wilma Oba to higher and peace upon me is to say now as you all know we need to the day I was born we all want to other day I was going to be I'm gonna die We almost all battle higher and the day I'm going to be resurrected. Peace Peace Salaam

00:33:11--> 00:33:17

so number one conduct with the source of peace. Our last panel what Allah

00:33:18--> 00:33:40

and one of the dewas is again Aloma anther Salaam yo Allah, you are a Salaam, woman caste Salaam shores, you peace comes from hainaut have been absent. How you know banaba Now let us live with peace, y'all Allah law lets us live with peace

00:33:43--> 00:33:51

hyena or ombre bisola. So number one, learn about Allah. Number two, read the Koran, but read it.

00:33:53--> 00:33:54

I'll give you an example.

00:33:55--> 00:34:02

When you are looking for something and you are so determined, you find it you're doing a search online

00:34:04--> 00:34:06

and you are patient

00:34:07--> 00:34:18

and you keep and you fail and you keep trying and you fail and you keep trying. What is the possibility at the end you will find what you are looking for.

00:34:19--> 00:34:20

A very good possibility.

00:34:21--> 00:34:56

This is how I want to look at the Quran. I want to go to the Quran. I say Allah, I know you have mentioned a lot of the word Salaam in the Quran. Let me find it. And let me there you're gonna find a lot if you do this. Let me take three of them or four of them. And let me delve in it and go deeper and see what will happen to my heart. Very interesting and also in the Quran and we just came out from

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

Milan, Milan, Lee little con

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

The Night of Power

00:35:03--> 00:35:12

lost power to Allah in the Quran in surah to other Salaam here had done a lot of life hedger, salami, hatanaka, life

00:35:13--> 00:35:30

is not peace upon the night Salaam, meaning you live in it in peace up till the night, or what Allah expect from you and me in that night is to please and obey Allah till the morning, I said,

00:35:31--> 00:35:34

in the Quran, number three,

00:35:36--> 00:35:39

to get into peace, internally,

00:35:41--> 00:35:46

and to have a last panel with Allah, give me peace, internally.

00:35:48--> 00:35:51

I need and this is something probably most of us know.

00:35:52--> 00:35:53


00:35:55--> 00:35:56

I need to obey Him.

00:35:58--> 00:36:03

I need to obey Him. Subhana Allah, how tall is this?

00:36:04--> 00:36:28

You look around you. And you find people who are living in obedience of Allah, internally and externally, don't judge people by external only internally, as important as externally, if not even more important, the people who live internally and externally

00:36:30--> 00:36:42

with the goal of pleasing Allah pantalla, they live in peace. They live in peace. So let's, let's take a practical example.

00:36:44--> 00:36:47

So I look around me now. And I see all this.

00:36:48--> 00:36:49

How do I get it?

00:36:51--> 00:36:52

How do I get it?

00:36:53--> 00:37:10

Remember number three is we are going to be obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala internally and externally. So here I am in the morning, I turn on the radio, as I'm driving to work, and then all the news I hear my heart piece is gone.

00:37:11--> 00:37:32

Right? That's much the unemployment. This is what happens to the stock market. You go to the office and you find this person is laid off, that person is laid off, then you see that person die, then you go into the news, all these things that will absolutely remove the peace, the peace will run away from my heart.

00:37:33--> 00:37:34

Try the following.

00:37:35--> 00:37:51

And you're feeling that agitation inside. And then I'd say you know what I just remembered that if I am going to be obeying a las panatela and living on his path, internal and external, I will live in peace. Let me try it. Say a stuffy Rama

00:37:53--> 00:37:53

just saved,

00:37:54--> 00:37:59

saved and see what will happen to the feelings inside you.

00:38:00--> 00:38:03

Even better, or the same.

00:38:04--> 00:38:13

is because I say the reason I said better because there's a hadith about when you send Salah Peace and blessings on roswaal is to a sinner

00:38:14--> 00:38:23

took for hammock. That's how we asked our Swati Salatu was Salam let me translate this took for him. You will be saved from wadis

00:38:25--> 00:38:56

this is how they have youth. So I Sahaba companion asked Allah Swati Asana to Asana and he said the arasu Allah, how much of my time or speech or a day I spent sending Peace and blessings upon you? And then the companion asked like one one quarter? And he said yes. And then he said I do more. He said yes and said, I do more. He said yes. And finally he said, I do it all. Meaning I will continuously send peace and blessings are Swati. salatu salam.

00:38:57--> 00:39:04

And he said to Claire hammock. If you do that, you will be free of worries.

00:39:06--> 00:39:15

Remember the definition of peace? What is peace? What did we say? Freedom of worries and disturbances. tranquility.

00:39:16--> 00:39:27

scent. Salalah alayhi salatu was Sara, when I see everything around me. And I don't have the ability this what makes us uncomfortable because I can change it.

00:39:28--> 00:39:43

And I can do things but I don't see the result. Right. And that's what translates internally to how I feel. Since Allah tala Swati Sato Sarah, a lot. Took the hammock, you will be removed from your worries

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

are swelling salatu salam This is what I wanted to tell you that the hamdallah made me remember. And it's the last I saw I could hedge the last area. The last verse in Surah two hedger. It's the first

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

Chapter hedger is like the rocks. The first

00:40:05--> 00:40:47

chapter, the first? Yeah the first, the first tour the first chapter in the pot in the 14 part of the Quran and hedger. You go on the last two ayat. Allah said the following will occur nullam and naka de casa de Luca de Maya Kowloon. We know a lot of stock into Rasul Allah Sato Sarah and he is telling him we know we know Allah, we capital W, na llama we know an aka you, you're the rock, you feel constricted and unease and unhappy from what they are saying.

00:40:49--> 00:41:04

state of unrest and peace internally. Now how do we feel when somebody talks negative about us? How about are Swati sought to Assam with all what they are? what they have said, well Akana alum na calle de casa de Luca de Maya Ohlone.

00:41:07--> 00:41:08

Now what do I do?

00:41:09--> 00:41:20

What do I do for sub Bethlehem? The Rob Baker for some beer behind the Ron Baker, glorify Your Lord for some Bethlehem Jerome Baker.

00:41:21--> 00:41:28

Well, a canal and one Nikhil buco Sato curry, Maya Kowloon, for sub Bethlehem, the ROB Baker, walk on minister,

00:41:29--> 00:41:44

glorify Your Lord Vicar of a law specifically glorify Subhan Allah for some Bethlehem Europe because what could mean a saggi Deen and we have those who are constantly in in prostration Salah

00:41:46--> 00:41:57

a number three recipe in the Quran. Why Buddha Rebecca had time to kuryakyn continue to worship your Lord till death comes to you.

00:41:58--> 00:42:54

Let's do this again. Well ohana Alamo, Anna calle de casa de Luca de Maya Kowloon, we know that you are uncomfortable, you'll be constricted your heart Your chest is constructed from as a result of what they are saying. Right? We can translate this and say I am feeling very uncomfortable and unease from what's happening around me. Right? What do I do a lot for some Bethlehem the Arabic glorify your Lord, connection with Allah connection with Allah, the source of peace for some back behind your own because what could mean a surge Udine be among those This is Tara Swati sought to be among those who are in prostration meaning Salah, sila Salah, my connection with Allah the

00:42:54--> 00:43:01

practical, the practical expression of my connection with a lot of solder.

00:43:02--> 00:43:08

The obvious connection, the obvious connection with Allah subhana wa Taala is Salah.

00:43:10--> 00:43:26

Welcome Mina, Sadie why Buddha Rebecca, worship your Lord now it's general Wildwood, Rebecca had it a karaoke word, worship your Lord, Your Lord till till death comes to you.

00:43:27--> 00:43:36

So I say this to myself before I say to anybody, if Rasul Allah salatu salam, O. Allah Rasool Allah has salatu wa sera

00:43:37--> 00:43:41

his heart and chest get constructed

00:43:42--> 00:43:53

from what's around him and what's happened. And he's Roswall he saw to me and you feeling unrest, anxiety, depression

00:43:54--> 00:44:12

is norm is expected but submitting to it and not doing something is not expected. I need to follow the recipe. The solution, the treatment, the prescription Allah wrote in the Quran

00:44:13--> 00:44:52

What is it your luck, sir, back behind your obika keep your liquor, keep your liquor, keep asking for forgiveness glorify Him. One two, Salah number one obligatory, but he was telling him do more, more in a Saturday, who is gonna, who's going to lift the injustice on this earth but Allah who is going to live the disease from this earth, but Allah who is going to bring peace on this earth, but Allah, Who is gonna make us live happy and prosperity, but Allah

00:44:53--> 00:44:58

will drop back when he told him worship your Lord in general

00:44:59--> 00:44:59

in general

00:45:00--> 00:45:00


00:45:01--> 00:45:28

every act, and I will remind myself and everyone, every act, that is halaal that is lawful can be changed to become an act of worship because worship is defined as a very saying, an action, internal and external that Allah loves and is pleased with every action internal external.

00:45:30--> 00:46:13

Allah from I'm sorry, every action and singing every action and seeing internal external that Allah love and is pleased with that's worship why would Rebecca Hata to karaoke? Why would Rebecca Taya to karaoke internally I'm going to work on me internally to live in peace in time of tabulation and trials and only one who's going to bring this piece internally is a last panel What is my connection with him? Mark working on my heart, staying away from since being pure let's people say I am naive Alhamdulillah because that's

00:46:15--> 00:46:26

a compliment in the in the way Allah subhanaw taala that's my heart. Don't feel ill or think ill of people unless I see it. I am always a lot conscious.

00:46:27--> 00:47:00

to three, my connection with the Koran, my connection with the Quran. I cannot stress on this more. We left Ramadan we need to take llama one left us but we are Quran is still with us. And Alhamdulillah our massage is being opened y'all don't be the Kalam Dr. Baker from your own vehicle. And number four, continuous act of worship, continuous our act of worship. And I'm going to end up with this beautiful saying, which

00:47:01--> 00:47:16

in the commentary in one of the commentaries about the verse I shared with you have Sawtelle hedger of the rock where Allah subhanho wa Taala cetera soiree Salam we know that your heart is constructed. The commentary on it is

00:47:17--> 00:47:27

the seed Mimosa. So you know, Musa talked to the last Pantheon, and he said, and it says that say no Moosa asked Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he says, Your Allah,

00:47:28--> 00:47:32

he's talking to Allah says, Your Allah, guide me,

00:47:33--> 00:47:40

guide me to a deed that if I am going to do it, you will be pleased with me.

00:47:41--> 00:47:55

Subhana Allah guide me, show me a deed an action, a saying an action, internal or external, that where when I will do it, you will be pleased with me.

00:47:57--> 00:48:05

And last pantile responded and he says, Son of a moron anymore Say no more, sir. My pleasure.

00:48:07--> 00:48:13

My pleasure. To be pleased with you, you have to do things you don't like.

00:48:15--> 00:48:39

Meaning meaning that what you are asking is hard. You will not be able to do it. Because I'm going to tell you do things you don't like to do. So say nimasa prostrated in crying spell la hora, Musab baqia Sina Musa prostrated and he was crying. And then our last point is my pleasure with you.

00:48:41--> 00:48:46

My pleasure with you is you will be pleased with my decree.

00:48:47--> 00:48:50

You will be pleased with my decree.

00:48:51--> 00:49:13

Our real pleasure and being pleased with what Allah decree and allow is the key to live in peace. Meaning, what when I see things around me, first thing come to my mind. And I always remind myself number one, Allah allowed it to happen

00:49:14--> 00:49:16

on law allow it to happen.

00:49:18--> 00:49:39

And Allah subhanho wa Taala is allowed with Allah is there just no one is just, no one is the just except Allah. Allah is a rough man, Allah is the merciful, no one is nor suffer, like Allah. I need to bring these principles back to me.

00:49:40--> 00:49:50

And when I see this, I will say Allah who allowed it, then in me is going to come and say, yeah, Allah allowed it. But that does that mean it's okay.

00:49:52--> 00:49:52


00:49:53--> 00:49:59

no, that's when I turned to Allah harness and I see your law. Show me the hikma, the wisdom.

00:50:00--> 00:50:20

Show me the wisdom of all what's happening around me, show it to me, or Eli, he will show you a lie, he will show you how you are sincere. And things does not make sense. And it's too much. And you know, Allah is watching and seeing and he's allowing it, and this is his earth.

00:50:21--> 00:50:25

And you he's, you're gonna say you're washing me, show me, he will show you.

00:50:26--> 00:50:44

And then and I internally, I'm gonna say, I am, I am pleased, because that's the decree of Allah. So I live in peace. But that doesn't mean I'm not sad. That doesn't mean I'm not going to act, but I'm not agitated. I'm not agitated.

00:50:45--> 00:50:47

So here you go, and I will leave you here.

00:50:49--> 00:50:51

live in peace, in time of

00:50:52--> 00:51:22

trials, tribulations, on a personal level, on a family level, community level, on a national level, international global level. The peace is internal. The peace is internal, the pieces internal, the peace comes from the source of peace, which is a loss pantalla and the more I am connected with the source of the peace, I will be more in peace.

00:51:23--> 00:51:53

Two or three, actually, I'm sorry, three. The peace resides in my heart. I need to work on my heart. Clean it. I want to be that person I thought was Swati. salatu salam is the best person Mohamad, pure heart, no illness, no jealousy, no anger, other only thing and it is a lot conscious, and purity, three, connection, connecting with his book

00:51:54--> 00:52:50

with his book, and everything he talked about to sit down and peace, connecting with his book for actions, what he told the roswaal is to a center, glorify our law. A lot of Salah prostration and turn and change every act and deed you do on your daily life, to an act of worship, purify the knee, make it for Allah only what I knew or doing has to be pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And last but not the least, I am pleased. I am happy with everything that comes from Allah. Because no one more than more subtle, more loving, no one more merciful, more loving to his creatures to his creation and to his Earth.
